Allan J. Kalman
Many association directors are interested in the background of the owners of the management company.My background consists of a Bachelor degree in Architectural Studies from the University of Illinois - Urbana.I am a licensed Structural Engineer in the State of Illinois and Professional Engineer in Wisconsin.For the five years prior to starting Kalman Management, I was president of the board of directors of the condominium association where we resided.At that time, I decided there must be a better way to organize the Association activities and to coordinate the functions of the Association.That is why we started Kalman Management.
As a structural engineer I worked on projects including TRW World Headquarters, facilities for IBM, McDonald's Corporate Headquarters along with other large and small projects.Working on these projects, one learns the advantage of being a team player which is necessary as part of your property management team.
Project management techniques learned in the years of engineering are used in the maintenance and supervision of contractors working on Association properties.Having the right person on the job is an advantage to all parties concerned.
With a background in Architecture and a good knowledge of accounting principles I strive to direct the Associations in a path that will lead to a good fiscal position that will increase property values and maintain a high level of standards.
I am an active member of the Community Association Institute, a national organization with a regional Illinois chapter that was established for the benefit of community associations.I currently hold a CMCA® “Certified Manager of Community Associations” title from the National Board of Certification for Community Association Mangers as well as the AMS “Association Management Specialist” designation.I just recently received the PCAM® “Professional Community Association Manger” designation which is the highest level designation provided by CAI. There are only 2100 PCAMs in the country.
I have served as a Trustee of the Cook Memorial Library District in Libertyville and was appointed to fill a vacant position.The Board assumed my background in architecture, engineering, and building maintenance would assist them in their pursuit of the expansion of the Cook Memorial Library District facilities.I was endorsed by the Daily Herald and the Pioneer Press (Libertyville Review and Vernon Hills Review) for reelection as Trustee.
